Forum: etree Subject: Re: How to correct a md5 error after upload

Yes, when a track fails the md5 check, you should get an e-mail letting you know what track(s) failed.

What you need to now do is log into the archive servers again, just like when you uploaded the shows in the first place (etree05.archive.org) and re-upload the file that failed. usualy what happened was that the file got almost totally uploaded, but just didn't finish. Either resume or just overwrite the entire track in its entirety.

then when that is done, go to the main audio archive page and click on "The Contribution Center" link on the left. Direct link: http://www.archive.org/contribute.php

In there will be an entry for the show you uploaded, with a note that it failed the md5 check. there will be a link that says something of "I have resolved this issue". Click that link and it will re-try the md5 check. if it passes this time, all is good! it will move the show to the public server and it will be good times. If it fails again, you will get another e-mail.

Hope that helps! if you don't figure it out, post again.
